    John Hannah or this year's left guard. Our current left tackle may pass both of them.

    The positions on a football team have such different duties its really hard to say if the quarterback or linebacker is a better player.

    Harry Gilmer.Invented the jump pass.Ive got him on the top bracket.Derrick Thomas is the most dominate player of my lifetime.Ive got him vs Harry in 1 semi final.Ill take John Hannah on the top right and Julio Jones with all due respect to Mr. Hudson on the bottom right.So my final 4 are Gilmer vs Thomas and Hannah vs Julio Jones.

    I thought Urban Meyer invented the jump pass.

    Because none of the fans were able to see him, he'll probably get fewer votes than the more recent players.
    Dwight Stevenson would be too small now to be effective.
    No linebacker made more tackles per game than Leroy Jordan, but few saw him play and the number gets smaller each year.

    You know you're the greatest college football team when you have a hard time, very hard time figuring out who's the greatest.

    DT was just insane. Never seen a quicker LB in my life. I'd go Barrett and TBD (Amari Cooper may be up there before long. He's special). This is a hard task actually.

    Derrick Thomas would get my vote although John Hannah, Don Hutson, and Lee Roy Jordan were all great, great players. Kerry Goode might have been the greatest had he not had the devastating knee injury his sophomore year.

    Re: Who's the Single Greatest Player in Alabama History?

    Depends on the criteria being used. If we're talking about accomplishments as a college player, AJ McCarron has to be up there. If he wins three straight as a starting QB, he's one of the best COLLEGE football players of all time, not just at Alabama.
